Deaf Skydive Meet in 2008? Can't Post

Hey!

Since we are in the end of the DWR2007, i posts an new post for the 2008.

What you want to do in 2008, only meet deaf skydivers and have fun jumps or an new DWR?

In Europe or US?

I knows somebody meet in Eloy first week of march.

Mads said no to go to Eloy. Borgvar must work. I wait to januar for seek about i can take an week holiday to come to Eloy or no.

I did hear last in DWR2007, an cool guy named Alan from UK do want to organizer deaf skydive in Empuria, Spain in august or september?

Maybe i can help with to organizer if you, Alan want help?

2008? it is almost 2008 now less than 20 days away. People need more lead time for trip to Europe, to get vacation time, Airline tickets, passports etc
you might be better off to set a date in 2009?
that would give everyone time to plan for, save funds $$ and schedule vacation time. for example my work we schedule our vacation for 2008 in Oct of 2007 and then your "locked in" to those dates..I already picked my vacation weeks for 2008 so unless I get lucky and its the same week as I picked I can't go..

I suggest you pick a date and set up a location for 2009

yes couple of deaf jumpers will be in Eloy AZ end of february / Early March 2008

Regardless of what some people say about the next DWR being in the states, I really prefer that it be in Europe. We need to be fair to the Europeans.

Great idea. You Europeans would have something to look forward to in the off-year, and so would the Americans at Eloy next March. Smile

Remember two things about Empuriabrava -

1. They require AADs

2. It's right by the coast and it can be pretty windy at times.

Great idea to test it out beforehand.

Deaf Europa Record is a Test for DWR and we can see other deafskydiver.
France, Italia, Germany, England and Norwegen People meet in spain one week holiday and jump, maybe we can DER jump.

If the good work. Then, we have the good condition of organizing in europe.

Therefore, it would be great, with most Springer from the europe times out.

 DWR 2009 will be at Eloy. One Germany will be at Eloy on Feb.-March 2008 for the RW training camp and I suggest some of you go there for the State Records.Smile For the Europa England has a good amount deafie divers to start the records and the other countries grow too. Whose ideas? Our ideas kick your ass to host the deafie Euro now to grow the organizing and some of us can go over the seas for the events. We love the challenge Smile ( Not need shut-up ) We can talk in the freefall with our sign languages Sly

Are we NEVER going to give the Europeans a chance to host a DWR? Unsure

I remember suggesting at Lake Wales that the next one should be in Europe, and then it's set at Spaceland in Texas. I thought, oh well I guess the Brits aren't going to be happy, but I figured I wouldn't have any influence because I wouldn't be able to go anyway.

Don't be surprised if "unhappy" changes to "pissed off". Unsure

But DWR in Europe can be in 2010 or 2011. :-D

Tommy and Alan will be good to have the events. We know the DWR help us growSmile When is the best time in Euro on Sept? 2008 or early 2009 ? or 2010. Vote and Will you be there?? Let us sign hard so the others will notice us Tongue Go 4 Euro... Any suggest and show us your free hands Smile

Re: [goesky] Deaf Skydive Meet in 2008? [In reply to] Can't Post

I know alot of you in US plans to take holiday a year before, but we iin Norway plan to take holiday only some moneths beforeCool

Maybe we can take it in Europe in 2010 and NOT in Empuria in Spain because it is alot of winds because the city in near coast.

Maybe it can be in a place near Seville, 250 miles south for Madrid. (Skydive Spain). The place is little new. Skydivers from England moves to Seville every winter to jumps in SevilleCool

But I can hear with Alan what he wish to do with it, maybe I helps him.

Alan, send email to me?

I like the year 2010. It gives us states-side jumpers a bit more time to get ready. And yeah, I'm a bit nervous about Empuriabrava because of the winds and its location between the city and the sea.

I will begin to learn to become an rigger i 2008 and be fix in october.Cool

In my DZ are this five skydivers wish to be rigger. We start to learn spring 2008 and an Master Rigger learn us in the summer.

But i think maybe we wait with Europe to 2010 because i wish to try make a trip-packet for you from US and outside.

We can travels around i Spain and seek much and jump too. Maybe seek bull fightersWink

Maybe a trip in Norway first with a visit in our DZ and BASE-jumps for you if you wish it.Sly

Better time to plan for you and take a long holiday in Europe in 2010. ?

Why don't we do each country every year, for example: England in 2008, Scotland in 2009, Netherland in 2010, and etc, through out the world expect Iraq and Afghan.
